  1. I wonder how these works in reality. You need to learn the facilities, the software, the people, so many logistical problems. Great for the professionals, but how is it for the patients?

    I know that in NYC some hospitals were paying RN's $200 per hour, for them to come in, but many could not work for license issues, yet they were on payroll and were getting paid, but did not do anything because by law the could not, but the hospitals were "staffed"

  2. Underpaid and harrassed by phone calls to work. I had to work on Christmas day on the last Christmas that my kids came home. I still regret giving in!!!

  3. Raise pay for CNAs and RNs the same as agencies, lesson the patient ratio for nurses and cnas and hire more cnas and nurses, also advocate cnas and nurses who are bullied from other staff. Fire the bullies with the appropriate proof and documation. Have a limit for daily and constant call ins and have a serious punishment and termination.

  4. How about we address the root cause, instead of keep putting band-aids?
    We have privatized insurance company and privatized health care, which prioritize profit over people's well-beings. Hospitals were always short-staffed, ON PURPOSE, for a very long time. Pandemic was just the nail in the coffin.

  5. It’s a bit scary to think the person caring for you could be completely unfamiliar with their surroundings and the support available to them and patients.

  6. Despite the economic downturn,I'm so happy. I have been earning $ 60,000 returns from my $7,000 investment every 13 day's.
